Internet Privacy questioned after House and Senate ruling

The Quello Center at Michigan State University debates communication policy.

Director William Dutton says that the potential policy changes regarding who can access browsing history is not something for consumers to worry about.

The House and Senate voted to revoke laws that make it so an Internet Service Provider can not sell browser history to third parties.

Web-based sites like Facebook and Google already do this. The policy that is trying to be removed was in place for around 6 months, according to Dutton.

Dutton says that since this policy in general was relatively new, consumers won’t see much of a difference in terms of security.
